Applied Mechanics

The Applied Mechanics Group has a broad and diverse portfolio of research programmes. These include the development of novel experimental techniques for non-destructive evaluation of components and systems, ie digital holography, shearography, moiré interferometry, electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI), and fringe projection. Applications range from profile measurement of aircraft structures to dynamic characterization of micro-scale components. Other experimental research work includes the characterisation of biomechanical systems such as tissue and bone, mechanobiology and nanobiomechanics, impact engineering and behaviour of materials such as shape memory alloys and metallic glasses. There are also on-going projects in cooperative weapon systems, acoustics and unmanned aircraft.

Research and development of nano- and micro-scale devices and systems in application fields such as biomedical, optical and power are actively pursued. Aspects such as design, fabrication process development, testing, performance evaluation and characterisation are studied.

Numerical simulation and analysis forms a major part of the research in the Group. Besides developing new and more powerful techniques in computational mechanics eg mesh-free methods, the Group is implementing advanced computational and other numerical techniques for important applications such as fracture and delamination in advanced fiber-reinforced composites, thin films and human anatomical systems.
